The document canvas view jumps back to the comment box where the cursor is positioned when you're viewing another part of the document and then going to any other open window and back.
Steps to reproduce:
1. Create a new Writer document with some pages.
2. Add a comment on the first page, let the cursor in the comment box.
3. Scroll down to another page.
4. Switch to any other open window.
5. Go back to the Writer document.
The document canvas view jumps back to the cursor.
The document canvas view should stay where it was before switching the window.
Maybe computer newbies are happy that they have not to search for the cursor position or the comment where they are in with the cursor. But during normal workflow it has a reasonable cause to go outside the comment and then switching window and then going back to the document showing the document canvas view where you were before switching windows. (In any way you can found out where your cursor is by typing a letter or an arrow key at the keyboard.)
Use case of the bug opener for OpenOffice.org in 2010:
[...] I would love if this jump does not happen. It often happens, that I scroll down to a specific position in the document and then need to look-up something in the web-browser. As soon as I switch back to writer the position of the document jumps back to the comment and I need to scroll down again.
PS: Maybe that is a relic of the many "view jump bugs" from old OOo times. I remember that there were several fixes in OOo 3.2 and OOo 3.3 for jump issues.
